Internet Census 2012
While playing around with the Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE) we discovered an amazing number of open embedded devices on the Internet. Many of them are based on Linux and allow login to standard BusyBox with empty or default credentials. We used these devices to build a distributed port scanner to scan all IPv4 addresses. These scans include service probes for the most common ports, ICMP ping, reverse DNS and SYN scans. We analyzed some of the data to get an estimation of the IP address usage.
All data gathered during our research is released into the public domain for further study.
Notes from Curator
This collection on archive.org is meant to be a dependable backup for the 500gb+ Internet Census 2012 torrent, which is currently hosted on http://internetcensus2012.bitbucket.org/paper.html. Some refinements will be necessary, additional material shall be added, and there is a plan underway to repack the material with a second set of slightly more accessible (not ZPAQ) compression methods.
